THINKING ABOUT STAYING WITH US?
You may like to hear what some of our previous Guests have said about their stay at the Le Torri di Bagnara.
MAY ALL WHO COME AS GUESTS, LEAVE AS FRIENDS!
“Magic in Umbria. Our family spent a week at Le Torri di Bagnara to celebrate a milestone birthday. Our visit could not have been more magical. The medieval castle has been updated but maintains its historical legacy in a beautiful and luxurious way. The accommodations are first class in every sense. Bicycles and walking paths are available to explore its 1500 acres. Dinner prepared for us 3 of the nights and Alex helped us pair our wines perfectly with the amazing meals of pizza, barbeque and porchetta prepared by their chefs. The outside terrace was the perfect venue for our evening dinners. Marcella assisted us with all details and was very accommodating. The staff couldn’t have been more pleasant, professional or helpful. The location allowed us the opportunity to make day trips to Assisi, Siena, Cortona, Perugia and Montepulciano/Montalcino. The remaining days were spent relaxing around the beautiful pool. There were many other amenities on the property that we chose not to use as the pool was our gathering place with its amazing views. Zenaide is the perfect hostess and surprised us with a gorgeous floral bouquet for the birthday celebration dinner. The dinner was topped with a delicious strawberry cake. We couldn’t have scripted a better week and the weather cooperated perfectly. The property sits high on a hilltop which makes driving up interesting but also offers amazing Umbrian valley views. It was definitely a dream trip come true.”

“I stayed at Le Torri Di Bagnara castles in September 2022 as part of a group of 14 family and friends. We had the staff prepare two dinners and did the rest of our meals ourselves. The entire week’s experience was outstanding. The facilities were clean and modern while maintaining the charm and beauty of the Castles. The staff provided excellent service; remaining unobtrusive yet contactable and responsive. Marcella was absolutely amazing arranging our preorder of groceries, facilitating activities, responding to queries and ensuring a top class experience. The large estate has a number of trails for hiking and cycling. We did a 10K walk entirely on the property. The chef and staff provided two delicious dining experiences and they fit into our schedule each time. Highly recommend for groups up to 30 persons who want a luxurious private vacation in a natural environment yet being in close driving distance to several Italian tourist attractions.”
Andrew L. Family & Friends – Canada – September 2022
“Just returned home from a wonderful week at Le Torri di Bagnara. Our group was comprised of family from all over the world for a surprise 50th birthday week celebration. Zenaide, the Owner, was involved with coordinating all the details with our agent, which included, guest transfers from and to the airport, detailed menus for all meals at the Castle, planned excursions to 3 different marvelous cities and a huge birthday night dinner with a photographer and DJ! A very big thank you to Zenaide for her professionalism, courtesy and attention to detail. To all of Zenaide’s staff who became family, especially Claudio, Alessio and Fernando just to name a few, thank you. If you are looking for an experience that will be talked about forever in the Umbrian country side of Italy, treat your guests to this location.”
Pino M. Family & Friends – USA – August 2022
“Was fortunate enough to be part of a group of 30+ for a birthday surprise. I can absolutely say that it was a magical experience with stunning views and such a great staff. The chef was amazing and the Contessa was so accommodating. Be prepared to do some walking but worth it. Also they offer home grown olive oil which my family picked up a few for the trip back home.”
Eric R. & Friends – Portugal – August 2022
“Amazing, incredible, peaceful, words can’t describe how unique this place is. Made even more so by the exceptional service before and during our stay. A truly magical stay.
We came to celebrate our wedding with 25 friends and family, renting both the castle and Tower. Before our stay Zenaide organized so many things for us, transfers, trips to Florence and Rome, catering, cooking classes and an amazing truffle hunt in the magnificent grounds. Nothing was too much trouble and she is an amazing host. Marcella provided a wonderful greeting and was there every day to help and support us, even ringing in pizza orders to compensate for our lack of Italian.
All the rooms are lovely, with air con in every space and great places to relax quietly if you want some peace. We also found we cycled through the multiple spaces; pool, back patio, courtyard through the day with the full group. Each giving a different but very relaxing feel.
We heard the Tower is going to be redeveloped into luxury suites over the winter and I am sure it will be of the same magnificent standard as the castle, but with the added advantage of the views across the valley, as the tower is a little further up the hill than the castle.
Overall, a magical place made spectacular by the service and attention to detail. Can’t wait to go back!”
David H.S. Family & Friends – UK – August 2022
“Magical setting. Perhaps the best pool in Umbria. Wonderful experience with Alex and Tanya for breakfast every day. Local restaurant recs were consistently good.”
Hillary S. & Friends – USA – June 2022
“Had a beautiful stay at The Towers of Bagnara Castles this past summer! Everything from the food, to the accommodations and the attentiveness of staff was excellent! The fresh food from the garden was an added bonus! Highly recommend the Towers to anyone looking for a magical stay in Umbria.”
Emily M. – Canada – August 2021
“Set upon an expansive estate with sunflower fields, verdant hills and a forest filled with truffles, Le Torri di Bagnara is an elegant, comfortable place to unwind with families and friends (it would also be a great place to rent for food, art and wellness retreats!). Countess Zenaide and her team can arrange many fun experiences for guests, from wine tastings and weddings to private truffle hunting excursions, cooking classes and hot air balloon rides in the Umbrian countryside. I loved lounging by the saltwater swimming pool and dining al fresco in the castle’s medieval courtyard. Thank you Zenaide for the wonderful stay!”
Livia H. & Friends – USA – August 2021
“Thank you for such a wonderful time. Your hospitality and team made our stay so welcome and enjoyable. It was truly a special time and exceeded our expectations in every way.

“We spent a glorious week on this property and would go back again and again. The surroundings, the accommodations, and mostly the incredible host, and her team were incredible…could not have been nicer or more organized and helpful. The food was also incredible. One of our best holidays ever.”Kimberly K. – USA – February 2019
“You have given our family warm, friendly, happy hospitality which has made our stay so very special. Thank you for everything and all the smiles :-). The birthday party was memorable! We look forward to the day when we can come back again to this wonderful, beautiful place.”
The Tizzard Family – UK – August 2, 2018
“We’ve have been looking forward to a time to relax and enjoy each other without any other distractions. Our short time in Italy has been rejuvenating, fulfilling and full of fun memories that will last forever. Our expectations have been met and more. We have had time to visit beautiful and spiritual places like Assisi & Greccio and bustling places like Florence, always looking forward to our “dinners feasts” at our castle, that have been full of laughter and memories. Your staff, service and food was memorable for all regardless of age or disposition, and your kind availability to take care of every detail with such Love and attention. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality, great service and attention to detail. We will never forget this “Very Special Vacation”. A special thank to Marcella and to Ferdinando, Andrea and Tania. And of course a very special thank to Zenaide for being personally involved in making our trip so special and let us stay at a “Home Away from Home”. We will visit again very soon!”

“We’ve been looking forward to enjoying the wonderful food, scenery & weather of Italy with all our family and friends for our wedding. The villa and grounds are so beautiful. We woudn’t image a more perfect location for our wedding. Our walks thorugh the hills in the property estate were memorable. Thank you for all your help making our event truly special. All of the staff were memorable. We will visit again as soon as possible. Thank you & arrivederci!”
The Jarzemsky & Orrock Family – USA – May 19, 2018
“Last fall I ran a truffle culinary tour in Umbria and had the pleasure to share my passion for all good things Italian with countess Zenaide Giunta ( our gracious host) who welcomed us for a week in her opulent castle. Both my guests and I were mesmerized: the grounds and rolling hills truly breathtaking, the meals we shared in the courtyard spectacular and the rooms well-appointed and very relaxing. Countess Zenaide and her excellent staff made our stay warm, personal and memorable…..and to call a castle home for a week even more delightful. Until we meet again … grazie , grazie mille!”
Maria L. & Friends – USA – April 30, 2018
“We have been looking forward to spending a week at the villa for our wedding. The estate has offered us the ability to enjoy Italy and our time with friends and family. The wedding was memorable. The poolside was a beautiful setting for the ceremony and the courtyard was perfect for an intimate reception. Thank you for providing wonderful meals throughout our stay, lovely staff to help us plan our day trips, recommendations for wedding planner, makeup artist, and photographer. It was a joy to work with and be around everyone at the villa. We greatly appreciated their help and patience with such a large and lively group. We will visit again on an anniversary – we hope. A final note: we enjoyed playing bocce ball ! Thank you, Marcella & Zenaide !”

We will visit again ASAP ! We hope to return some day because we found Le Torri di Bagnara to be the absolute perfect place !”
The Cunningham Family – USA – July 29, 2017
“The Torri Di Bagnara property is the definition of luxurious. The staff became family and the 1,500 acres of land blew our breaths away. Every day was filled with excitement and pure bliss. We couldn’t have imagined a better place to celebrate our marriage and to ultimately reunite our families. The gods above blessed us with great weather and an amazing team of organizers. These words do not express full greatness of our experience.”
The Alvarez/Ahmed Family – USA – September 30, 2016
“Thank you for the wonderful week we spent in Le Torri di Bagnara. My family and I greatly enjoyed the beautifully restored castle, its luxurious facilities, the magnificent location. I wish to thank Zenaide and Roberto for the warm hospitality and the tour you organised in the entire property. We are already thinking of a future stay in your Umbrian castle, hopefully soon”.
The Shalev-Hurvitz Family – Israel – October 7, 2015
“When my wife and I decided to have a destination event for the renewal of our wedding vows, we wanted to create memories for life for our guests as well as ourselves. We thus had high expectations for our week in Umbria/Tuscany–and the Torri Di Bagnara exceeded them with an exclamation point!
It all starts with the owner and proprietor of the Torri–Zenaide Giunta (a true descendant of Napolean Bonaparte), and her on-site staff, led day-to-day by Roberto Ciampi. Zenaide has restored a property and created a facility that is a match for its spectacular surroundings. The property and the buildings are as attractive and comfortable as they appear in the photos. The food (we had two dinner events on site for 30 people and full breakfast every morning) were top restaurant quality.
But the real point of distinction was Zenaide’s personal presence and the effort of Roberto and the Torri staff during the week to ensure everything ran smoothly. No detail was too small, from candles for a cake, to screens for video, to a professional grade garment steamer, to ensure our stay was second to none.
One last point is that the Torri accommodated our group of 30, including a couple of families with children that benefited from the fully appointed apartments with kitchens in the Tower–the property has two buildings for accommodations–but it can also be taken for smaller groups in only the main villa, without the Tower property. So on top of everything else, the Torri has great flexibility for different sized groups with divergent needs/desire for accommodations. There is even a lovely consecrated chapel attached to the Villa, available for weddings or simply daily devotions”.
